Fashion at the Museum

I went to  ‘Selling Dreams – 100 Years of Fashion Photography’ at the Auckland Museum yesterday. A very good exhibition. Most of the images I had never seen before so it was great to be exposed to something new. I don’t usually read the blurbs next to the art when I am wondering through, I prefer just to take in the image. But the written information in this exhibition was historical, succinct and interesting – I read every word! Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

I couldn’t take any photos in the exhibition but this quote appeared at the very end… I couldn’t agree more Vidal. Well said! These words completely sum up for me why I continue to make my own clothes and get so much joy and satisfaction out of it!

Why do you sew and make your own clothes?

    1. Good on you! We don’t all want to be the same as each other do we? I love Auckland Museum, actually most museums are pretty cool! Yes that’s me in the pic. I didn’t make the dress but I am thinking I do need to copy the pattern and make one with different fabric. I got it ages ago from Misses Room in Wellington.
